Diabetes Cure in Ayurveda( Madhumeha )

Ayurvedic Diabetes ( Madhumeha) Cure | Diabetes Cure in Ayurveda :-

Synthetic drugs like Sulphonylureas, biguanidine, acarbose and Insulin are widely used in Allopathic treatment of Diabetes (Madhumeha). However Diabetes is termed as SILENT KILLER and recently evidence of cases of “Insulin resistance” and the occurrence of side effects from prolonged administration of conventional drugs have triggered the search for safe and effective alternatives.  Ancient science of Ayurveda has discussed diabetes at length thousands of years ago.  The knowledge and effectiveness of diagnosis can be understood with the fact that Ayurveda has classified Diabetes (madhumeha) into 20 Types. Diabetes Cure in Ayurveda / Ayurvedic Diabetes Cure are also discussed in detail.

Diabetes Cure in AyurvedaBefore discussing Ayurvedic Diabetes Cure | Diabetes Cure in Ayurveda, we will examine the types of diabetes , its causes and symptoms .

Description of two types of Prameha from management point of view strikingly is the same Krisha Pramehi (Lean Diabetic) and Sthula pramehi  (Obese Diabetic) are classified in Ayurveda on very similar grounds as Diabetics are classified in IDDM and NIDDM respectively. On the very similar pattern we find the classification as Sahaj pramehi (Congenital) and Apathaya nimmitaj  (Due to overeating and wrong eating habits).

Ayurvedic System of Medicine clearly defines Diabetes.  Diabetes Mellitus was known to Indian Civilization since vedic period by the name Asrava (Prameha).  Diabetes is also known as Madhumeha. Diabetes is also called Maharoga (Major Disease) as almost all parts of the body and every cell of human physiology are effected. It also disturbs 5 sheaths of the body – annamaya kosha{Food sheath}, pranamaya kosha{Energy sheath}, manomaya kosha{Mind Sheath}, vijnana maya kosha{Intellectual Sheath} and anandamaya kosha{Bliss Sheath}. According to Ayurveda, prameha is divided in 4 major types (and total 21 types)Kapha type (again divided into 10 types)

vata pitta and kaphaPitta type (again divided into 6 types)

Vata type (divided into 4 types)

Juvenile diabetes for children (for unhealthy practices of parents and/or due to the sins of past-birth)

The main cause of prameha(diabetes) are lack of exercise and consumption of excess food having ushna, snigdha and guru nature. Foods that increase kapha, medhas and mootra are the major factors for prameha.

Involvement of ojus in Prameha (Madhumeha)

Ojus is the essence of life, an extract of the seven dhathus {Elements} Rasa(Chyle), Rakta (Blood),Mamsa (Muscles), Majja(Marrow), Asthi (Bone), Meda (Brain & Spinal Cord), Sukra (Sperm & Ovum), Ojas (Mahadhatu=Superior Dhatu) represented as bala {strength }of the body. The ojus in a healthy person determines the physical, Psychic, sensory motor functions of the body. The biochemical component of the body which is reddish, white, slightly yellowish in colour residing in heart and other vital organs of the body. If ojus is distrubed, degeneration will be fast and result in decreased life span. In prameha the ojus (life essence is expunged from the body through all navadwaras especially through urine & sweat.)

Ojus gets imbalanced in prameha in two ways:

1)      Through obstruction in blood vessels {srothorodha}

2)      Degeneration of the body components is dhatu kshaya this can cause both cardiac & nervous system disorders.all this is ojakshaya meaning an imbalance in Ojus.

Management of Prameha (Madhumeha)

According to Ayurveda the line of treatment of prameha is strictly on individuals constitution.

1)      The prakrithi of the patient

2)      Dosha predominance of disease

3)      Dooshya vitiation

4)      Obstruction in srothus

5)      Manasika Prakrithi

6)      Ahara & Vihara

7)      Hereditary factors etc…

 In general Diabetes Mellitus {Vathaja prameha}Patients are advised to have Bhrimhana medication & diet which increases dhathus in the body
